SOUND TRAVEL (2019)
Sound piece for Live! presentation with Collaborations by Guest Musicians (voice, flute, Electronics).
S.T is an experience and a listening exercise. It is a piece intended for the reception of sounds in detail and how these affects us individually. Through the use of sound in its purest and most fundamental essence, the piece is composed with different sections, dynamics, spatial reflections, vibrations, timbres, etc. to be absorbed by the listener. The sound as vibration, the body as a receiver and the mind as a guide in a "sound travel”.
I use the idea of a "travel" as an experience of internal journey open to the perception and resonance in each individual. This piece "Requires the temporary suspension of judgments and the willingness to receive new information, whether pleasant, unpleasant or neutral”. -D.L Quote
Sound travel is inspired and has as references the teachings of Pauline Oliveros (Deep Listening), the sound pieces by Alvin Lucier and compositions by Morton Feldman, among others.
Sound travel is not a meditation or a therapy, it is a sound-spatial experience and an invitation to listen.
The 1st Version of the SOUND TRAVEL piece was prepared and presented on FEB 23 for the Opening of the “ENALTES” Exhibition at Haimney Gallery with very special collaborations: The singer and artist Monica Mussungo contributed with her voice to the piece, and the visual artist Marlene Pieroth created masks for the performers and blinds for the audience. The piece was supposed to be performed 1time but we ended up doing 4 pases in a row. I really enjoyed the people reaction to the piece and the atmosphere that was created…
here some images of the SOUND TRAVEL version 01 (with live Vocals).
The people (audience) was kind enough to write about the experience afterwards… here some of their comments
SOUND TRAVEL is a piece that will be performed periodically in diverse spaces… the Version 02 is on preparation!.
